Marketed Emotionalism With Weaponized Government Agencies'-- Align With Media For Control...

by John Donnelly……. Are we really back to the some old nonsensical gibberish and gobbledygook?: “See Something, Say Something.” More murderous psychobabble, that was in effect and partly responsible for the murdering of 17 innocent students and teachers while at school. The “See Something, Say Something” blather was not adhered to nor followed by the authors of this trite and meaningless drivel. The FBI, Broward Sheriff’s Department, School Administration, Social/Family Services and Mental Health experts promoting this pointless, ineffective and murderous twaddle never followed through with any [continue reading…]

Book Review: Beautiful Chaos

by Kirby Congdon……. Book Review Beautiful Chaos Poems by Jose Gomez 6 x 9 pb (50p) ISBN: 978-6925319-5 Many references heighten ordinary speech and we can trust the empathy that underlies this man’s experience. In this reviewer’s opinion Mr. Gomez’ work is often erotically central and, like his vocabulary and the construction of his ideas they are often skillfully handled. Three memorable ones are “Cello,” the mellow reality in “Chaos,” along with the steady construction that provides the humor in “Am I,” a poem that [continue reading…]
